Martin Fröst conducts Beethoven's Symphony No. 1 The Swedish Chamber Orchestra

About

Clarinet virtuoso and conductor Martin Fröst made his much awaited debut as Principal Conductor of the Swedish Chamber Orchestra in 2019, breathing new life into an already refined ensemble, encouraging them to take risks and embark on musical adventures.
